email receipt - Company Name not showing

I've added the "company name" variable to the eCart Checkout Form session, and it is displaying on the confirm page just fine, but that new field is not posting to the email receipt. I've uploaded a copy of the receipt.php file, can you tell me where I'm going wrong? This is the final step holding up our launch... Thank you.

if you look carefully at the confirm page, you will see that for every form element on the checkout page, there is code to store the value from the checkout page into a session variable near the top of the page, and there is a hidden form element to re send that value near the bottom of the page.


on your confirm page, look for the section of code that stores the session variables, and add this:

php:
<?php

if (!session_id()) session_start();
if(
$_SERVER["REQUEST_METHOD"] == "POST")     {
  
$_SESSION["companyname"] = "".((isset($_POST["companyname"]))?$_POST["companyname"]:"")  ."";
}
?>



then find the collection of hidden form elements and add this:

php:
<input type="hidden" name="firstname" id="firstname" value="<?php echo ((isset($_SESSION["companyname"]))?$_SESSION["companyname"]:""?>" />

It worked! I guess I had skipped a step, there. Thanks, Jason...
